We’ll pick a top winner and some runners-up.
It could be you!

I have 2 cards to share with you today.

 Here’s card #1: This is the type of Clean and Simple (CAS) card that meets of AAA Cards CAS definition.
Lots of “white space” space (any color) WITHOUT ANY texture or pattern.
I did some stenciling, creative stamping, fussy cutting, heat embossing and dry embossing to make the card.
Here’s card #2. This card is Clean and Simple, BUT it does not meet AAA Cards’ requirements for “white space” because of the all over embossing.

img_5943_edited-1If I had dry embossed only part of the card, maybe the edges of the card or simply the center panel, it would meet the AAA Cards’ CAS defintion.

img_5944_edited-1I made the center panel of this card I used some liquid masking medium through a stencil
and then did some ink blending over the masked flowers.img_5949_edited-1
 I did some fussy cutting, attached the panel to the middle of the card front and then stamped the sentiment. img_5947_edited-1
Then, I dry embossed the front of the card. I love this card, BUT it DOES NOT meet AAA’s Clean and Simple requirements.

Here, once again, is my embossed card which meets AAA’s CAS definition.

I hope that you are inspired to play along. Make sure you stop by AAA Cards and visit all of the design team members’ blogs.

hi there

Hi! I’m here today with a quick post. I don’t seem to have much time to make cards “just for fun” right now, but here’s one! I used some NBUS on this! Hi there, Darnell!

Slide001

I applied masking fluid through the ARTplorations stencil Bloom Silhouettes (NBUS) onto watercolor paper,

preview-web-stencil-045-BloomSilhouettes

allowed it to dry and then did some watercoloring.

Slide02

Allowed the paint to dry, removed the masking fluid, then I stamped the sentiment.

Then I used (more NBUS) two of the CUTplorations Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies.

I attached the panel to the card base and popped up the small panel with some foam tape.Slide03

This was a fun card to make and would be quick and easy to duplicate.
